Ryan Lochte Would Consider 'The Bachelor'
Gold medal-winning swimmer would first need to ask his family, however
Ryan Lochte's plans to dominate TV as we know it are taking shape.
The gold medal-winning swimmer and the evil mastermind behind the catchphrase "Oh jeah" was a guest on "The Tonight Show" Thursday and joked with Jay Leno about his single status. Lochte, 28, added that he wouldn't mind being the center of attention on ABC's "The Bachelor," but would have to talk to his family first.
"If they asked me to do 'The Bachelor,' I would consider it," he said, adding that for the past four years he's been training for the Olympics and wasn't able to date seriously.
Lochte, who is clearly enjoying his newfound status as a heartthrob, said he's also thinking about becoming a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars."
"In college I took a dancing class. I got an A, so I think think I’d be pretty good at it," he said.
Lochte isn't just weighing his reality TV options. The Rochester, N.Y., native recently shot a cameo on the CW's "90210."
Season 5 of "90210" returns Monday, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. "The Bachelor" season 17 debuts in 2013 on ABC.
